the street. a lot of people after hurricane irene said they decided to stay put. what you see in the distance is a new york city bus that has been converted into a hurricane shelter transport. there's 72 hurricane shelters set up throughout new york city. so far at last check, there were only about 1,100 people staying inside of them. mandatory evacuations were in place for hurricane irene but that storm petered out. this, of course, expected to be much worse. so many people buying generators, water, extra food, deciding to stick it out. the problem with all of that is in the past four hours that we've been here, conditions have deteriorated quickly. so when people notice that something could really be wrong, they may not have a chance to get out safely. veronica. >> you can hear the wind picking up. tracie strahan of wnbc, thank you. >>> moments ago president obama canceled a campaign appearance in florida in order to get back to the white house sooner to monitor the storm. nbc's tracie potts has the latest for us from washington. tracie, what's going on? >> reporter: veronica, as you can se

's lay them out. we start with the storm surge. in irene at battery park which is where i am tonight, we had three to six feet. we're expecting four to eight feet with this storm here and down the jersey shore as well. that will be higher than what they dealt with during irene. so plan on similar scenarios there. then look at the rainfall. huge areas of two inches plus, four inches plus. locally ten inches in spots in parts of new jersey and the chesapeake bay. if you remember the state of new jersey was one of those heavily fladed flooded back here with irene. then snowfall. to add insult to injury, west virginia, ohio, maryland, pennsylvania and parts of virginia could get 50 inches of snow with this. add all these ingredients together, that means power outages, some which will last for weeks. pennsylvania, new york, west virginia, an 800-mile-wide damage path with this. on the 108th anniversary of the opening of the subway system in new york, we're hoping that in 48 hours parts of it won't be under water. >> places are holding their breath tonight. jim cantore in lower manhattan for u

feet higher than the water level was with irene, august a year ago. we're staying hunkered down and bringing pictures the best we can. >> we appreciate that, mike, i don't have to tell you the real estate there is hugely valuable for the state of new jersey. it is a recreational playground all summer for millions of american families. what is high tide where you are? is this the after-effect of the mean high tide on the jersey shore? >> reporter: yeah, the high tide is occurring right about now. it ranges generally between 8-8:30 between atlantic city and up here. so it is occurring right now. so we would suspect, now that the storm has gone inland, and the winds generally -- eventually will come around offshore, that it won't get much worse than this. the water won't get much higher. but again, it is already two and a half to three feet higher, at least at sandy hook than it was with irene. so that puts that in perspective. and i think when we get first flight tomorrow you will see how the entire coastline has been re-arranged from the entire storm. >> i think my wife and i had

tomorrow morning. just to put this into perspective for you, 7 to 11 foot storm surge, when we had irene and that was very damaging, that storm surge only went up to 4 feet, so we could see double, potentially triple the size of the storm surge that we dealt with when it came to irene. for us locally, we have a much better scenario to look forward to. highs are going to be nice and comfortable. right now visibilities are dropping off. we've got thick pockets of fog in santa rosa, napa, even concord has one mile visibility. 80 degrees inland, 70 bayside. at the coast a comfortable 69, 70 degrees as our boys come home to san francisco, so we're looking good there. let's find out how good we're looking on the drive. >> there's not a lot offin dents reported but a big warning for folks. here's the bay bridge toll plaza. they turned on the metering lights. it's a little slower across the span. also you can't make out the east shore freeway, but we'll show you the maps. look at this orange, that's where fog may be thick enough to affect your speeds. you know what, i think they're excited about

last year tropical storm irene you may recall wasn't really that devastating. this system is going to be about two to three times more powerful when it moves onshore. you can see estimated rainfall. anywhere from 7 to 13 inches of rain and that does not include the storm surge so we're talking about storm surge up to three to five feet. that's the whole ocean moving in. if you have been to new york city, you know the lay of the land. it's very low there. our thoughts and prayers go out to the folks in new england. as far as our home temperatures go, we'll look at comfortable conditions. 78 in oakland. 78 in santa cruz. comfortable in san francisco at 74. seven-day forecast does tell the story. here it is. wednesday into thursday in a rain arrives. it will be late. if you have plans to take the kids out first perhaps for trick-or-treating, you and your two daughters, the cobra and giraffe, if you are making plans to head out, it looks good. keeping our fingers crossed. an important forecast to watch. we'll watch this this week. rob mayeda will be in. it looks good. keep the fingers

pathetic, i even had the ceo, irene rosenfeld on the wall of shame. but when we got wind of the breakup, i took rosenfeld off the wall and congratulated her and said you absolutely had to buy kraft because it was going much higher. that was on november 10th last year. since then if you held onto kraft you wracked up a 26% gain. that was all about people anticipating the breakup. but now that the breakup has arrived, now we have to decide what to do with the pieces. on october 1st, kraft officially split into two separate companies. if you own shares in the old kraft foods, you now find yourself owning krft, the kraft foods group that includes oscar mayer, lunch meat, as well as kraft and velveeta cheese. by the way, this can survive thermonuclear war virtually unscathed, as well as maxwell house, which is, you know, well, i think it's gastrointestinally too difficult to show. and you own shares in mondelez, truly iconic brands, oreos, chips ahoy, cadbury chocolates. chips ahoy, cadbury chocolates. so what's the next move? do we ring the register on both because the breakup catalyst has com
